The house is beautiful just as the picture shows but that was about it for our vacation. We had issues from the time we arrived until the time we checked out. Although the overview states the house has a elevator you can not use it without paying an additional deposit which they do not tell you upfront. We found out when we arrived by a note on the elevator door. We had a couple of elderly ladies with us and that was one of the reasons we picked this house as the kitchen, living room and dining room are located on the 3rd floor. The house was not very clean, the beds on the 1st floor were not made, the sheets were folder and placed under the bedspreads...not on the beds. There were dry food on dishes and silverware, mice droppings in drawer, stain/dirty comforters, loose railing on patio located on the 3rd floor, trash in the yard, TV in game room did not work, stereo speakers outside by the pool did not work, and the bicycles they provide broke as the chain came off while we were riding which caused injuries to the foot/knee where the person in our party could not get in the water from day 2 of our vacation. They brought us 2 blankets as they had to take the comforter for special cleaning. They did finally come pick up the trash in the yard. The TV, speakers. railing and bikes were never fixed before we left. The picture shows a hot tub attached to the pool but when questioned we were told it was a little pool....then when we arrived and saw it had jets but a lock on the "spa heater". I called to ask about it again and they said it was a martini pool "it did not have jets". I stated I am looking at it and the lock on the side that states "spa heater" they finally said the owner did not want anyone to use it. I called 4 days straight in a row with some type of issue and then just gave up. Now it's a month later and we still have not received the deposit back for the elevator we had to pay. We have stayed at several different places in Destin, FL over the years and have never had any issues like this ever. It is sad that anyone should have to endure some of these things, but all of these that is ridiculous. All that they said was "sorry". We will not stay at a property managed by this management company ever again!!
This house is beautiful in EVERY way. It's very large so there's plenty of room to spread out and not be crowded. We have 7 adults(3 couples) and 4 children traveling with us and the space was more than adequate. The furnishings were nice and the kitchen was lovely! We enjoyed the pool table in the house, the private pool, and we were steps away from the beach.
The only minor drawback was that the bunk room is the only bedroom on the 1st floor so the children, who in our case are small, were unattended and we were concerned that they might walk out of the front door and into the pool which is just outside of the front door.
Nevertheless, this home is every thing you would want in a home in Destin: beautiful, very spacious, well furnished, updated, and very close to the beach!
